{ Working 9 to 5 }

Working with October Afternoon's 9 to 5 that is, LOL! (Not my joke btw, but Danni's from the Nook and OA :) ). She was the one who pointed out the fun October Afternoon challenge for which I created this layout!

The challenge is: use the "9 to 5" line to create a project based on this sketch:


And because I bought a LOT of this collection that same day I started on the challenge straight away!
Here's my layout:



The journaling is about how I worked as a secretary for many years, but after completing a parttime study (of 5 years!) I changed my career and became an HR officer. The photo was taken the very first day I started working as an HR Officer with Allseas Engineering. Looking back this job was the most fantastic job I ever had! Working in an offshore company was really something special. I still recall the fun "office" parties and outings we had on board of their pipelaying vessels :).


Some close-ups:



How I love everything that October Afternoon carries .... the papers, the diecuts, the buttons, the stickers .... LOVE it all!! Oh and above all I ADORE their Washi Tape!! (I used it to create the border around the circles).

Okay, this is it for now. Have a fab weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
Monique
